“I Got a Painted Rock” Rock Hunt – Sunday, October 1, 2017

The rock painting craze has hit Northern Kentucky! The NKY Hidden Rocks group spreads joy and inspiration through painting and hiding rocks around NKY and beyond. A community-building group that boasts over 10,000 members on Facebook, the NKY Hidden Rocks group has energized individuals and families across the region to explore and engage with the communities in which they live and work.

A special FREE rock hunt with an autumn/Halloween theme takes place on October 1 at Memorial Park in Independence, KY. Hunting begins at 1 p.m., with all activities (including raffles, a painted rock sale, and prizes for kids) concluding no later than 4 p.m. Best of all, Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky has been selected as a beneficiary of this event! The rock group is encouraging participants to bring donations for CHNK and proceeds from the rock sale will be shared between CHNK and another local non-profit. We hope to see you at this innovative, family-friendly event!
